You know the saying "It's about the journey, not the destination"? Well, hiking up to the summit of Mt Kinabalu is about both - the entire journey and the final destination. The destination is Low's Peak at 4095.2m, and the journey is just over 8.5km of straight up, up and more up, followed by all down, down, down after you have summited.

It's not all about climbing mount Kinabalu as much as the monopolistic tour operator would like to have you think. It tends to work like this here - one tour operator owns the lot and dictates silly prices as well as offering an insulting absence of quality to those who just want to appreciate what a beautiful country Borneo is. In the end it's …

... office to book the guide. I was very lucky to meet a great team of volunteers in the place I was staying at, that didn't hesitate and adopted me for one day which we spent on one of the nearby islands. The day turned out to be a lot of fun around bunch of amazing people. It surely helped me take my mind of the mountain, but on the other hand I'm pretty sure that's what I was talking about through most of the day. Sorry guys...

So the moment has arrived....

Sabah is in Borneo, Malaysia and is becoming popular with Australian visitors. Kota Kinabalu City has geared up for tourism and Malaysia Airlines has direct flights from Perth in WA. A few days in Kota Kinabalu allows you to get a feel for the city and while there is plenty of shopping, the night markets and Sunday market are the main attraction. A city base is the starting point for the various tours, the best of these ...

    Mountain stay outside the National Park

    Outside the park so cheaper accommodation option (RM30pp dorm room), in a beautiful mountain setting. But if you have luggage and decide to walk, instead of taking a taxi from the National Park, just be aware it's about 2km walk and there's a few uphil bits! Great location though - where the turnoff is to the Lodge from the main road, there are stalls selling vegetables and fruit. You can use the kitchen at the lodge to make your own food. The lodge has a very homely feel with lounge chairs, tv, verandah to take in the views and very helpful staff. Also, by the food stalls on the main road, you can wait to grab a bus to Kota Kinabalu - extra handy!

    Great breakfast every morning and Leo and the team are very friendly and helpful when advising on Kinabalu climb and national park trails. Side road there is a little tricky with bags!
